Things happen when you have a baby. Some of them are unpleasant. Some of them are permanent. Take my ribcage, for example. I’m pretty sure it has doubled in size since Isobel. I didn’t notice a difference until I saw this pre-pregnancy photo of myself.
Was that really my body?! It seems impossible. Where did I put all my organs? I guess things happen when your body goes from that to this:
Something’s gotta give. In this case, it was my ribcage. I tried on all my dresses in preparation for the photoshoot and found that I could no longer fit into my favorite green dress. Boo & sadness. I totally love that dress but even if I lost 20 lbs that dress will never fit me again. It no longer closes over my ribcage. And my lady bits? Aren’t helping.
I mentioned giving this dress away on Twitter and received several interested tweets. Only one way to solve this problem: GIVEAWAY! That’s right. Only the finest previously owned merchandise for you Little Big readers.
The photo above hardly shows off the cuteness that is this dress, mostly because my body is hugely deforming it. Pay that no mind! I only wore this dress maybe three times so it’s in excellent shape. I bought it at Target when Isaac Mizrahi was doing his thing for them. It’s a size 2 but Target size 2 runs large.
The green color is just about my favorite green color ever.
The ruffled neckline pleasantly enhances the décolletage.
The buttons were my favorite part. They were so fun.
I put on the dress for the photo and I barely got out of it alive. It got kind of wrinkled.
Anyway, this is a great dress and one of my favorites and I wish I would have forseen the expansion of my ribcage and bought a large size. Oh well. This pays off for you! To enter to win the Adorable Green Dress:
